.s. government response has frankly been confusing. u.n. ambassador susan rice has said the attacks were not preplanned. secretary clinton said she had absolutely no information or reason to believe there is any basis to suggest that the u.s. ambassador was on an al qaeda hit list as a target. the state department said u.s. officials at that post never passed along the warning from the libyan government on militias and security in benghazi. now the administration appears to be backtracking a little bit, at least on the assertion about whether the attack was preplanned or not. but the take-away right now from the administration, when you take a step back and look at this information and the conflicts in the information, appears to be this. the americans on the ground failed to tell washington about the risks, so it isn't the state department's fault that they didn't stop it. well, why so much confusion? chris coons is on the senate foreign relations committee, he has been briefed on the situation. and first, sir, thank you very much for taking the time. let me start and ask you, since i k
it was preplanned within 24 hours after the death of the ambassador. yet susan rice, jay cancer oh, several obama officials going out saying it was a response to the movie. is this a cover-up? >> they lie. there is no question about it. by the way, if the republicans did that, there would be hell to pay. everybody would call for resignations and it would be terrible. but they lie. everybody knew they were lying. they knew almost immediately because it was obviously an attack. this had nothing to do with that stupid nieces made and it was stupid and it was ridiculous. but they lie. they've been lying for years now. they get away with it and the press allows them to get away with it. >> steve: so you're very clear, there are people who are lying about it in the white house. but -- >> they knew they were lying. i mean, they were saying it with a very straight face and they knew they were lying and certainly after the first 24 hours, it became the big lie and they kept doing it and the press allowed them to get away where w it. >> gretchen: why were they lying? >> in order to save face. in order to s
the benghazi attacks. some statements were made by the am bass do to the united nations, susan rice. now, peter king is calling for her to step down. here's what he told our wolf blitzer. >> i believe this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts, as were known at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect be our spokesman for the world and misinform our allies and spokesmen around the world. someone has to pay the price for this. things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. we have to send a clear message on such a vital issue like this where the american ambassador was killed, the presumptioned a to be it's terrorism. can see why they would have said it's too early to definitively rule out it was terrorism. to me, it was a terrible mistake to make whether intentionally or unintentionally, to show the significance, she should resign. >> the white house is standing by rice. they said everything she said in that interview was cleared by int interagency groups based on information they had and certainly nothing wa

stands beside the calls for susan rice to resign. member after the attack in benghazi that killed four americans ambassador rice called it spontaneous reaction to protests over anti-islamic film. fox news has since learned that u.s. intention officials had internally classified the incident as a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. now the chairman of the house homeland security committee, the republic congressman peter king says ambassador rice delivered information that was, quote: either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong. the senate majority leader harry reid fired back saying some lawmakers are just trying to score some cheap political points. catherine herridge with us live from d.c. tonight. catherine, you spoke to the republic chairman on the house republic committee how did he react. >> just a short time ago congressman mike rogers suggesting the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath in the attack on the consulate in libya. spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serio
doing, what ambassador to the u.n. suc susan rice did, what the president did, was plain tell the american people a falsehood. >> sean: it was never plausible to me from the beginning. here's the anniversary of 9/11. two waves of terrorist attacks. the libyan president said it was a terrorist attack from day one. they spontaneously had mortars and rocket-propelled grenades in their back pocket as they're protesting a movie trailer. it never made sense. the president spent his entire speech at the u.n. saying he's sorry for the movie, how much he condemns the movie. >> president obama has almost a psychological need to be totally blind to the realities of islamic extremism. it is astonishing to me how consistently he rejects all information, which would teach him that there are people out there who actually want to kill us. i mean, it is so beyond any reasonable way to explain it, that it's almost though as he has a desperate need to believe in something totally false. >> sean: going back to these pictures here, what they ask in this letter that hillary clinton will receive tom
offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for us. the p
